The professional edition Barcode Scanner for Android devices is among the most accurate and fastest barcode scanning applications. With this scanner, you can create, decode, share, or scan barcodes and QR codes. Here’s a full review of the handy tool.
Barcode Scanner Pro uses a simple design alongside a familiar interface to offer the best user experience. You don’t need any guidance to perform any action or use the features since the design is also quite straightforward. Overall, the design and user interface of Barcode Scanner Pro deserve a 4.7/5.
With this app installed on my smartphone, it’s easy for me to make my own QR codes and barcodes such as bookmarks, email address, and contacts. Once done, I can share the barcodes on Facebook, Gmail, LINE, WhatsApp, and much more. What’s more, it’s possible to check my scan history to share with my associates or make comparisons with other products, and open the search page or web address of the decoded results via Google.
The latest version comes with improvements on the features, performance enhancements and bug fixes. So it’s advisable to keep checking for updates and get them for better user experience. Interestingly, there are no in-app purchases for the application, so you don’t have to worry about being limited on the features offered.
One setback, however, is that it comes as an Android app and works with Android version 4.0.3 and above. So iOS users are limited to using other similar apps whose features and functionality may not be on par with those of the Barcode Scanner Pro. On the feature highlights, I grant the app a 4.8/5.
Convenience and Performance
The convenient interface alongside easy-to-use features of the Google Play app make it a very handy QR code reader. In fact, within a few minutes after installing, I was already creating my barcode like a pro. Better yet, it is lightweight, and for the whole time I’ve been using the app, never have I ever experienced a crash. However, at times, it takes multiple attempts for me to scan barcodes. Fixing these defects is enough to make it a leading scanning application on the platform. I rate the convenience and performance at a 4.5/5.
- The app is free;
- No discouraging in-app purchases;
- Allows social media sharing.
- It can’t scan pictures saved on the device
- The ads are irritating;
- Only available for Android devices.
With this app, asset and inventory management is no longer a tedious process. This justifies the over 57,300 five-star ratings on Google Play. Just like any other app, it comes with some bugs, but they can’t beat the myriad of features and functionalities. All these defects can be fixed with the regular updates. That aside, the Android mobile app is still one of the most advanced methods of tracking down information about the purchased and sold products in a retail store. I like how fast it works as well as its accuracy, and I recommend it.
